Question: Can you mate with just a Knight + Bishop?

Ok, so I guess this is how you would play out the position. Now what is your point beside showing us that you don't know how to win this difficult endgame?

Kc6 was actually a mistake from what I can see. Qg4+ picking up the Bishop.

not super hard, but also not easy to do if (in 50 moves) if you have not worked on it and solved it at home. by the way does anyone know if the chess.com live games consider K+N+N vs K a draw if your time runs out?

I believe I remember reading recently that it is a draw. But I am not 100% positive.

according to stockfish

Use Lomonosov tablebases. They are perfect whatever the position you set up on the board, as long as you use up to 7 pieces. Those tablebases are liteary perfect. Your local Stockfish does not have tablebases, and is therefore uncapable of finding the forced mate in so many moves. Ordinary Stockfish doesn't even see the mate with bishop, knight and king vs king, until few moves prior to mate.

NN vs. nothing is a WIN for the NN-owner if the opponent runs out of time ( because the NN-owner has "sufficient material" ). If the NN-owner runs out of time, however, the defender has a DRAW, because the defender has "INsufficient material".
